Are You a Synesthete?

Inspired by talking about my synesthesia last night, this morning I looked at some websites and found one that offers free online tests for different kinds of synesthesia.

On the "Grapheme Color Picker Test," a score below 1.0 is ranked as synesthetic. Non-synethetes typically score in the range of a 2.0. I scored 0.5.

On the "Speed-Congruency Test," a score above 85% indicates synesthesia. I scored 95.31%.

It was fun to take the tests and fun to see that my results do confirm my own self-diagnosis.

If you'd like to see if you're a synesthete too, you can take the tests here.

I took the tests. I got a 2.74 on the first type of test and a 53% on the second type. I didn't think I was a synesthete, so I thought it'd be interesting to test how someone who wasn't would score. Pretty much how the testers predicted I'd do.
